Connections of Soho Interceptor say the filly will be heading over to Melbourne following her impressive win in the Two-Year-Old Fillies Sales Classic (1730m) at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Driven by Shannon Suvaljko, the Glenn Elliott-trained youngster, rated 1:57.6 to score by 1.5m from hot favourite Has No Fear, and now an interstate trip is on the cards.

"Soho Interceptor will be taken to Melbourne later this month," owner Rob Watson said. "She has a lot of ability and looks up to winning rich races there.

"The sales classic was only her third race and she can improve much more."

Soho Interceptor, who narrowly missed equalling the 1:57.5 race record held jointly by Arma Xpress (2012) and Red Hot Roxy (2016), never looked in danger and Suvaljko was impressed with the performance.

"I let her keep rolling along in front," Suvaljko said. "The filly fought on strongly."

Elsewhere at the WA track, Its Rock And Roll later claimed a record when he rating 1:56.6 to win the $100,000 Two-Year-Old Colts and Geldings Sales Classic (1730m).

Its Rock And Roll, trained and driven by Colin Brown, ran on powerfully to triumph by a head from favourite Shockwav.

Meanwhile, champion reinsman Chris Lewis was at his best when winning the Clipsal 56 Series Pace (2130m) with Johnny Fox.

"That's one of the best drives I've seen," said Johnny Fox's owner Merv Butterworth.
